My time in Vilanculos with Mandy, Pat and the horses was nothing short of a magical! The rides were beautiful, amazing and fun - for both experienced riders and non experienced riders. The professionalism and safety measures were set in place without making it any less fun and wonderful. No one came back without a fat smile plastered on their... More

Me and my boyfriend do not recommend this tour : first it is way too expensive. Second, we did many horse ridding in our lives, but they did not let us ride alone, and forced someone to take the horse by the leash . That killed all the magic of ridding near the beach. Third, we thought that the landlord... More

Joining Pat and Mandy and their beloved 'refugees' horses is a must do in Vilankulo. The horses are very well trained and there is nothing to worry about. When you finish the ride you feel like wanting to jump on again and again. Unforgettable.

My girlfriend and I had the most amazing time riding along the beaches in Vilanculos, Mandy was an awesome guide and gave a really interesting historical tour of the local coastline. Horses were in great condition and well looked after, friendly and warm experience, catering to all rider levels

I visited Mandy and Pat recently and had the most wonderful time. Pat, Mandy and the grooms simply adore their horses and this is clear to see. The horses are marvellously kept. Hats and chaps are provided for riders to ensure comfort and safety throughout the stunning ride across breathtaking views and beaches. Riders are matched to horses depending on... More

We went on a 1.5 hour beach ride. There were 7 clients on our ride and we were split into 2 groups according to ability. We were asked for details of our riding experience and what sort of horses we preferred, ie forward going. We are both experienced riders and were happy with our horses. They are exceptionally well cared... More

My husband and I are Australians, and in August 2016, we travelled to beautiful Vilankulos in Mozambique to do a horse safari, and participate in all that is on offer. Our hosts, and the owners of Mozambique horse Safaris, Pat and Mandy Retzlaffe, bent over backwards to ensure all of our needs were met, matching our personalities and abilities to... More

To ride a horse on a beach can be done in a lot of places in the world today, but the ride i had was different. Upon arriving in Vilanculos i heard the story of a family that had... More

I have had the most amazing holiday here in Villanculos. The friends I travelled with had various riding abilities and we would all agree that the riding at Mozambique Horse Safari was simply the best. Our hosts Pat and Mandy went out of their way to ensure the ride was to our riding ability. The safety of clients and horses... More
